Trump claimed the electoral system was rigged in 2016

As we know, this was merely a repeated assertion fallacy with no substantive supporting evidence ever provided.

This was a form of deception designed to undermine the system. It's almost as bad as actually rigging it. As I see it, Trump is disqualified from being a champion for voting fairness.

Regardless, he's taking up the "cause" and campaigning hard against absentee voting in 2020.

Do Republicans not see this contradiction? Or is it another case where they look the other way as Trump harasses the Democrats on a liberal front?

3. He also challenged the 2012 results when

it appeared that Romney might actually win the popular vote.

It is Heads I win, Tales you lose in every engagement with these people. They have no shame. Their supporters have no shame. They are willing to bulldoze 240 years of representative rule for a single win.

4. Yeah the smart ones know what's up and turn a blind eye it seems

The Kool-Aid drinkers are what they are.

So you are either debating with someone who will not debate in good faith, or someone who lives in an alternate reality.

Or some combination of the two.
